    I don't know, but I know a really easy way to find out.

    Made From Pears: Pretty good chance that the product is at least
    mostly pears.
    Made With Pears: Pretty good chance that pears will be detectable in
    the product.
    Contains Pears: One pear seed per multiple tons of product.

    It depends on the batch - I have seen MCP and MCP that lasted only one
    or two years until it lost speed and showed fogging while my current
    roll of Agfa MCP is 4 years old and still as good as new - in fact I
    compared it with "new" Adox MCP and they are in fact *very* clos.

    There was a very high level of variation in this regard.

    Dear David:

    I also know the easy way to find out, but I won't receive it until
    next Thursday.
    I know that it freezes well, but other than that I'm in the dark
    (room).
    I just ran out of my 110 rolls of mixed 35mm and 120 versions of
    APX-100 and I suppose I just purchased the remaining rolls offered on
    Ebay during the last 4 weeks.

    Regards.

    I think the biggest factor to aging is from neutrons emitted from the
    sun. kodak had/has an under ground site under ?Lake Erie? that has the
    density to block most of these wave lengths. Freezing slows chemical
    reactions so it may help reduce the prior effect...Sorry I don't have
    more specifics. I too have used 3+ year old paper with acceptable
    results and those without.
